WOW! – How Many Fabrications, Misrepresentations, etc., Can One Blogger Roll into One Blog Post?

I always find Sou’s (a.k.a. Miriam O’Brien) posts at HotWhopper entertaining.   She normally is only capable of the Monty Python contradiction approach to argument.  When you read her posts in a Monty Python-light, they are very funny. Try it.  But in her recent post James Risbey and co: Another perspective on surface temperature observations and climate models Miriam has risen to new heights of misinformation.   That post was her “rebuttal” to my post Lewandowsky and Oreskes Are Co-Authors of a Paper about ENSO, Climate Models and Sea Surface Temperature Trends (Go Figure!).  It didn’t take long to understand what she had done.  She couldn’t counter my primary arguments (and if you’re wondering what they were, read the closing of my post), so Miriam just made stuff up.  I started to count the number of blatantly obvious fabrications, untruths, falsehoods, misrepresentations, etc., but then soon realized it would be better to try to find where she had not misrepresented my post and my work regarding ENSO.  I had very limited success in that.

Got nothing to do for 5 minutes?  Looking for some entertainment?  Go read her post about Risbey et al.  It’s absurdity at its finest.

Thanks, Miriam.  You made me laugh.

  1. Thanks, Bob. The answer is infinity, it always is when dividing by 0 (this appears to be the author’s integrity level in this case).

    The phrase “so far behind she thinks she’s ahead” come to mind…

    Hi Bob,

    I’m sure you didn’t miss that one, it’s the only part directly related to figure 5:

    “The point being made was that the model runs most in phase with the real world ENSO observations had a “PDO-like” spatial pattern of cooling in the east Pacific. Look at the above charts close to the equator near South America.”


    This another curious thing:

  4. Bob Tisdale says:

    Moru H., I will agree that parts of the spatial pattern of the sea surface temperature trends from the “best” models appear to be showing the wrong sign of the PDO.

    Hi Bob,

    I left a comment at Dr. Lew’s website and someone replied, now we’re having a conversation about the paper. It’s not a A-grade scientific discourse, i tried my best but i have a hard time taking the whole thing seriously.

    George Orwell saw this coming in 1946 and tried to warn us a new tyrannical government would rule by disinformation.

    Here is a brief summary of the little-known events in Aug-Sept 1945 – based on my research career and those of Sir Fred Hoyle (1915-2001) and Dr. Paul Kazou Kuroda (1917-2001) – that gave Joseph Stalin the power to change the course of world history:

    1. Unreported CHAOS and FEAR of nuclear annihilation in Aug-Sept 1945,

    2. Preceded formation of the United Nations on 24 Oct 1945.

    3. Sir Fred Hoyle changed the internal composition of the Sun, and George Orwell started writing his warning to the public in 1946: “Nineteen Eighty-Four”.

    4. And now we see that “The second most terrifying thing about George Orwell’s “1984” is the supposition that it is possible to destroy humanity without destroying humankind.”

    5. Or as Edmund Burke concluded, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
